Maize. Close-up of a cob of maize (Zea mays). Rows of individual kernels are seen. Maize is one of the world's most important crops, being used as a foodstuff directly as well as in flour, oils and margarines. It is also used as a source of alcohol and as an animal feed. The cobs are a source of furfural, a solvent used in the plastics industry.
